We went on a Mothing night at Stithians Nature Reserve last night, which was arranged by the warden, Simon Taylor. We would like to say thanks for a really enjoyable evening.
Here are some of the Moths we saw, a few are not named simply because we can't I.D. them.
You may well notice that the Eyed Hawk-Moth has very little colour on it's wings and that is because in a moment of near hysteria, having felt something crawling up the inside of my trouser-leg I hit it several times (not knowing then what it was ) and by the time John rescued it the damage was done, It was still able to fly though.
I feel terrible that it was so obviously damaged but it was me or him. Sue
